Beautiful Secret by Claire Raye is a wonderful love story about Julia and Aiden. Julia Harris is a famous award-winning actress. She meets Aiden, the production assistant on her new movie, and the two get off on the wrong foot. Aiden assumes the worst of Julia, given her celebrity status. When Aiden finally realizes his mistake and decides to get to know the real Julia, he is amazed to discover she is a genuine person with a beautiful soul. Julia and Aiden cannot help falling for each. Julia is afraid of the risk her career poses to Aiden's privacy, and Aiden is willing to risk it all for her. Their relationship is a ticking time bomb because the people around them are getting suspicious. Will their love withstand the coming storm, or will it crumble and fall?

Strap in for this beautiful story. The glitz and glamour are not what they seem to be. The Dirty Hollywood Series features the stories of what goes on in the background when the spotlights are off. Julia and Aiden have the most intense chemistry. They both know what they want, but the world will not let them be together. I loved reading Beautiful Secret. Claire Raye managed to keep me hooked from start to finish. The story was well-paced and did not have any lagging moments. The characters were mature and conveyed their emotions so well. The banter between the characters was engaging and felt natural. Amazing! I hope to read more books from this series because I was fascinated by the side characters and their love lives.
